Job 32

32:1 So these three men ceased to answer Job, because he was righteous in his own eyes. 32:2 Then was kindled the wrath of Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite, of the family of Ram: against Job was his wrath kindled, because he justified himself rather than God. 32:3 Also against his three friends was his wrath kindled, because they had found no answer, and yet had condemned Job. 32:4 Now Elihu had waited to speak unto Job, because they were elder than he. 32:5 And when Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of these three men, his wrath was kindled. 32:6 And Elihu the son of Barachel the Buzite answered and said, I am young, and ye are very old; Wherefore I held back, and durst not show you mine opinion. 32:7 I said, Days should speak, And multitude of years should teach wisdom. 32:8 But there is a spirit in man, And the breath of the Almighty giveth them understanding. 32:9 It is not the great that are wise, Nor the aged that understand justice. 32:10 Therefore I said, Hearken to me; I also will show mine opinion. 32:11 Behold, I waited for your words, I listened for your reasonings, Whilst ye searched out what to say. 32:12 Yea, I attended unto you, And, behold, there was none that convinced Job, Or that answered his words, among you. 32:13 Beware lest ye say, We have found wisdom; God may vanquish him, not man: 32:14 For he hath not directed his words against me; Neither will I answer him with your speeches. 32:15 They are amazed, they answer no more: They have not a word to say. 32:16 And shall I wait, because they speak not, Because they stand still, and answer no more 32:17 I also will answer my part, I also will show mine opinion. 32:18 For I am full of words; The spirit within me constraineth me. 32:19 Behold, my breast is as wine which hath no vent; Like new wine-skins it is ready to burst. 32:20 I will speak, that I may be refreshed; I will open my lips and answer. 32:21 Let me not, I pray you, respect any man's person; Neither will I give flattering titles unto any man. 32:22 For I know not to give flattering titles; [Else] would my Maker soon take me away.
